PRAYER TO ST PAUL MIKI AND COMPANIONS
MARTYRS OF JAPAN
O God, strength of all the Saints,
who through the Cross were pleased to call
the Martyrs Saint Paul Miki and Companions to life,
grant, we pray, that by their intercession
we may hold with courage even until death
to the faith that we profess.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity
of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
